Decay - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Few seek relationships to end in ruin from rust.
But those who make claims not to know,
When signs began to show deterioration...
Are the very ones who implemented,
Not only the dust and distrust...
But also the wounding that began the decay.

    it is often difficult to face that which we know to be true....maybe living such denial for the longest times....you capture this wonderfully here...beautifully sad. (Report) Reply
